Named in honor of esteemed past presidents Gladys and Murray Goldstein, the Cultural Center serves as a modern living center of Jewish culture‚Äďa comfortable, intimate space where congregants and visitors can witness presentations of Judaic art, archeological artifacts and contemporary Israeli art, as well as traveling exhibits from recognized and established museums.After originally serving as a music room and later as a Braille bindery, the Cultural Center was established to exhibit art and artifacts drawn from the vast treasury of American and Jewish artistic history. With its displays of beautiful, commemorative photographs and storied objects, this cache of memorabilia provides an illuminating tribute to the Jewish people's contributions to arts and culture.
